What is a Facelift? 

A facelift, also known as a rhytidectomy, restores and refreshes the youthful appearance of the lower face, jawline, cheeks, and neck. It is common to combine surgeries like a brow lift or eyelid surgery to enhance facial rejuvenation results. Facelift reverses signs of facial aging, fatigued eyes, jowls, deep plane wrinkles, and excess fat and loose skin. Facelift plastic surgery also contours facial areas where drooping or relaxation of aging skin has occurred due to loss of collagen and elasticity. 

Facelift plastic surgery is one of the leading cosmetic procedures done by Dr. Rod at our Phoenix, AZ, surgical center. Dr. Rod has a long-standing history of reputable work with client-desired results and has made facial enhancement surgery one of the primary focuses of his practice. He combines the most advanced facial reconstruction and rejuvenation techniques to reverse signs of aging by 10-15 years.
